Does anyone have a solution for my right click menu on my desktop taking a
little while before displaying. In the old days of Win 3.1 that might not
be noticed but in Win XP with a good computer I dont want to wait a 7
seconds for it to display. Is this a video driver problem? I am updated to
the lasted update I thought.

Congratulations. You discovered another undocumented feature in Windows XP.

Workaround: Control Panel, Display, Appearance, Effects. Clear the
transition effects for menus and tooltips.

Locke,

This is usually caused by third-party shell extensions. Investigate using
method 2 described in this article:

Right-click is slow or weird behavior caused by context menu handlers:
